  •  60 round clips don't work well (0+ / 0-)

    30 years ago, when I was in the military, they even took away the 30 round clips because they were more prone to jamming.  20 round clips were the ones you could count on to actually feed cartridges into the weapon.  Interesting that the focus is on the capacity of the clip, when an empty clip can be changed to a full one in less than 5 seconds (way less, after I was properly trained).  It can take minutes to clear a jam, depending on just how bad it is.
